The world celebrates mental health day on the 10th of October to spread the awareness and importance of mental health.
Depression is a common mental disorder. Globally, more than 264 million people of all ages suffer from depression.
Approximately 15% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental disorder.
Mental health is an integral part of health; indeed, there is no health without mental health.
Suicide is the third leading cause of death in 15-19-year-olds.
79% of global suicides occur in low- and middle-income countries.
“What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, and more unashamed conversation.”
